GCCMS 20th Anniversary

Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society presents the Journey of Excellence to celebrate its 20th anniversary.


The Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society (GCCMS) was founded by a few local music lovers in 1995. It is an independent, nonprofit organization with the mission to promote Chinese culture through music and education. 

For 20 years, GCCMS has presented many high-impact events of transformative nature, bringing an eye-opening cultural experience to residents in the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond. Our efforts continue to help improve cultural diversity and connect people in the community.

Our annual Chinese New Year concert is a signature event that showcases local and international virtuosos of traditional Chinese music and Maestro Mark Gibson's CCM Phihlarmonia Orchestra. It has become a must-be-there event for many in the area, attracting local and national press and giving an occasion to bring people to gether for a unique celebration.

Supported by ArtsWave, our newly launched youth program is quickly taking off. The program focuses on promoting cross-cultural understanding and building collaboration skills among the young generations by involving grade schools, companies and community organizations in music- and arts-related initiatives.

GCCMS is a non-profit organization operated by volunteers. Without our generous patrons, donors and sponsors, we would not have achieved 20 years of successes. Without GCCMS and the concerts we present, the local communities in the Greater Cincinnati area will not have the opportunity to experience the rich and fascinating Chinese music culture at home.


It takes significant resources to mount a show of the same caliber as consistently demonstrated by our annual Chinese New Year concert. Without our generous individual and organizational sponsors, we wouldn't be able to meet the challenges of producing world-class concerts and cultural exchange programs as well as offering learning opportunities for youth in this region. 


We can't thank our volunteers enough. Without their dedication, support and service, GCCMS simply does not exist. We are very lucky to have many talented volunteers that help push the organization to grow and evolve. Join us if you share the same dream to connect people and improve diversity in our community as well as build a vibrant and attractive community for everyone.
